The band has won a one-year contract to produce an album with T-Series and a music video on MTV. The band, fronted by bassist Mhathung Odyuo and Obed Kath, guitarist Lichen Kichu and Drummer Bendang Kichu, has also been gifted a set of musical instruments including high-end guitars and equipments by global guitar leader Gibson. Divine Connection beat formidable competition in the Top-10 from rock bands Kaivalya, Guwahati rockers Axis, Bhopal outfit Joshish and West Bengal’s progressive rock group Down Syndrome to shatter the 13-episode series.
